The suspicion will be announced to first four suspects in the crash of MH17 Boeing of Malaysia Air Lines in 2014 in Donbas as soon as their names are announced by Joint Investigation Group (JIG), as Interfax-Ukraine reported citing Deputy Foreign Minister Olena Zerkal.
“The names will be announced. The suspicion will be provided. Then the Criminal Court of Schiphol (the Netherlands) should work; it will consider this case. But until the court establishes the guilt of some persons it is impossible to say that they are guilty…It is only the top. Of course, later the number of people, involved in it, will be larger than four people, who are going to be announced,” the message said.
Zerkal noted that it is impossible to pass such armament as Buk missile system, which downed the plane, “without permission of the leadership”.
The deputy minister reported that “all information is present on how Buk arrived but there is no information about persons who shot, who is responsible”.
Presentation of the international group of the investigators Bellingcat is expected.
It is reported that the representatives of the Netherlands and Australia are jointly moving “within their complaint against Russia as the state for the downing Boeing”. “They also held one round of the consultations with them and now they come to the second round to persecute Russian as the state”, Zerkal added.
“Right now is the international and legal responsibility. All of these are difficult processes and they treat them very carefully, prudently and unlike us, they understand that it is impossible to hurry in the international law with the international and legal responsibility”.
Earlier it was reported that the relatives of MH17 tragedy victims held a protest in the Russian Embassy in the Hague. The protesters urged Russian authorities to accept the responsibility for Boeing 777 crash.
Boeing 777 of Malaysian Airlines, flight number MH17 was destroyed while performing a regular flight from the Netherlands to Malaysia in July 2014. The tragedy took place in the sky over the militant-held section of Donetsk region. All 298 people aboard deceased; most of the victims, 196, were Dutch, but there were citizens of another nine countries as well.
The governments of Australia and the Netherlands officially accused Russia of being behind the disaster.
